00 – Hello indeed! Yes yes bark bark?! 1721! Happy new year! Sunny jan 4 in LASOCAL.

Jimmy does indeed have a head wound.

Jimmy’s joined a Harry Potter fan club and his initiation tattoo isn’t done.

He tells us what really happened, after talking about his Chicago t-shirt, a reunion announcement is imminent!

The t-shirt he is wearing is 39 years old. A 1977 promo shirt for Chicago XI.

Matt says the shirt could use a little ironing.

Jimmy got it from eBay.

Jimmy is unshaven and fresh off a marathon.

No need to come early Matt!!

Jimmy’s lower back is also hurt. He shows it off to Matt. It’s chaffed. He goes back to the race.

Jimmy talks the vertical inclines and slight decline on that race route.

15 – Now that Nick Simmons has a man bun it’s time to drop that fad. Also Justin Bieber has one.

No IT Band trouble on this race. 2hr28m on the race. Great time for Jimmy. No injuries on this race, aside from the chaffing.

Headband lights – 

Jimmy knows his door is on wrong.

20 – He opened his door and leaned in to check the screen door. His head collided with the door. He split his forehead open. Danielle and Oliver thought he was doing a bit until it split open and the blood started. Oliver immediately went for ice (which he does all the time). It was bad enough that he went to urgent care.

A little make up on that and it’s good as new.

Matt is unsure about Jimmy’s hair.

25 – Jimmy’s mom was in a hit and run accident on New Years Eve but she is fine! Jimmy makes a point to say how great the police was in that situation.
